Examining The Play Of Henrik Lundqvist

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

You almost have to feel bad for Henrik Lundqvist, don’t you? The Man Who Has Everything has nothing to show through the first three games of this Stanley Cup Final series.

No luck. No help. No wins.

Well, nothing is not entirely accurate, of course. The embattled Rangers ‘keeper does have one thing:

Excuses.

Lundqvist was on the hook for three goals on just 15 shots in New York’s 3-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night. But who could blame him, right? The first might have deflected off the skate of defenseman Dan Girardi about 20 feet out and changed direction slightly. The second was redirected by another well-meaning block attempt by Martin St. Louis. The third was created when the puck bounced off the skate of Ryan McDonagh directly onto the tape of L.A.’s Mike Richards.

In fact, that’s pretty much been the story of the series for Lundqvist.
